One could refer to Bill Gatton as "Mr. Highland Park." Mr. Gatton was born in 1921 in the "City of Highland Park," as were his eight brothers, and lived in the neighborhood all his life. His father was employed by the L&N Railroad and walked to and from work everyday. He was president of the Highland Park Neighborhood Association and led the airport expansion protest. Mr. Gatton is very knowledgeable about Highland Park history and was writing a book on the subject at the time of the interview.
